As I mentioned before we usually paint in the afternoons – it is what works for us. So here is another great Dr. Seuss theme painting activity. Students can either cut out fish bowls or teachers can. Or you can just lay out a big piece of paper with fish bowls drawn on it and have students paint then cut out. Use Corn Syrup paint – mix corn syrup and food colouring. This will give it a glossy, puffy look. Have students paint. Then give them fish (either you cut out or they have foam ones at the dollar store) and glue on. You have One Fish Two Fish, Red Fish Blue Fish art.
Work on students phonics knowledge with this great fisher price website. First the website goes over each letter and sound with a picture example. Then you can have students differentiate between sounds. Then they play a game to test their understanding. Big, bold letters and pictures. It’s a great tool to use.

What parent doesn’t love getting a picture of their child in a cute dress up. Well it’s the perfect idea for Dr. Seuss Day. Here are some pictures (from pinterest) of different Dr. Seuss photo props. Easy to make and the kids will have fun. Make a class book after on the SMARTboard with them.
Example: Mrs. Smith is the Cat in the Hat. Bob is the Lorax. Kids will love looking at this day after day.
